Heavy Rainstorm Drenches Manhattan Beach: How Many Inches Fell?

MANHATTAN BEACH, CA — The first major rainstorm of the season pummeled Los Angeles County this week, with more flood watch warnings on the horizon forecasters said.

Manhattan Beach saw nearly nonstop rain since Tuesday night, making way for drier skies ahead for the holiday weekend according to the National Weather Service. Over the last three days, Manhattan Beach got a total of 2.76 inches of rain according to LA Public Works.

So far this season, Manhattan Beach has gotten a total of just over three inches of precipitation beginning on Oct. 1 according to Public Works.

Most of LA County’s coastline saw between one and two inches of rain over the last three days. The San Fernando Valley saw between two to three inches of rain while downtown LA saw just under two inches.

Cogswell Dam in the San Gabriel Mountains logged the most amount of rainfall in the last three days according to NWS with 5.55 inches fallen.

This recent storm brought a variety of dramatic weather conditions throughout the county, including a parking structure that partially collapsed in Rolling Hills Estates and dramatic flooding in North Hollywood that stranded at least one car.

California residents will likely see more dramatic rain storms throughout the winter season as forecasters predict a strong El Niño weather pattern to hit the state.

The Climate Prediction Center says with 100 percent certainty the strengthening El Niño weather pattern will last through early winter, and with 90 percent certainty that it will last until spring. The agency, a division of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, expects the El Niño pattern to bring very rainy conditions to California this winter.

In most El Niño winters, the Golden State tends to be rainier than usual from January to March. In moderate to strong El Niño winters, we normally see a strong southern jet stream and atmospheric rivers during that period.

Following the downpour, Los Angeles County beaches were put under a health advisory as high levels of bacteria are expected for at least 72 hours after significant rainfall.

“Bacteria levels can increase significantly during and after rainstorms, as contaminants within the runoff enters the ocean,” according to the LA County Department of Public Health. “Elevated bacteria levels in ocean water may cause illness, especially in children and the elderly.”

Manhattan Beach Among Most Picturesque Beach In America

MANHATTAN BEACH, CA — The Golden State is known for its beautiful beaches that draw people from all over the world to come visit, and according to a new study from hotel company Westgate Resorts, Manhattan Beach is among America's most picturesque beaches.

The study analyzed the number of Instagram hashtags for the most visited beaches across the country and then compared the numbers with each beach's length to calculate which beaches had the highest number of hashtags per meter.

With 3,379 meters in length, Manhattan Beach placed sixth on the list of most Instagrammable beaches in the country. According to the study, there were a whopping 1,614,293 hashtags on Instagram about the beach, totaling 478 hashtags per meter at the Los Angeles County beach.

With just 86 meters of length, La Jolla topped the list of most Instagrammable beaches in the country despite being the smallest beach in the top 10.

Three more California beaches made the resort's list including Laguna Beach, which placed third, followed by Venice Beach, which placed fourth. Just missing the top five, Neighboring beach Hermosa Beach placed seventh on the list.

South Beach in Florida placed second on the nationwide list and Sandy Beach in Hawaii rounded out the top five.

"Spending time at the beach is the foundation for any good memory, with this study highlighting which beaches have made a lasting impact on social media users. With social media become such an integral factor in where we choose to spend our time, this study provides a fascinating insight into the locations around the country that offer the most picturesque backdrop to our photos and treasured memories," a Westgate Resorts spokesperson said.

With the holiday season in full swing, Westgate Resorts launched a competition that allows anyone who submits a photo of a memorable moment for a chance to win $1,200. Whether the photo is of the beach, a concert or a family vacation, any happy memory uploaded to the resort's website has a chance to win.

This must be Manhattan Beach

The corner of Manhattan Beach Boulevard and Ocean Drive tells a tale of two eras: Manhattan Beach’s surf bum past and its glitzy present. On the south side of the intersection sits Shellback Tavern. Preserved within its blacked-out beachfront windows and memorabilia-covered walls — signed by volleyball gold medalists Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh Jennings and other local icons — is one of the last places in the neighborhood where you can buy a few beers with only the damp, crumpled 20-dollar bill in the pocket of your swim trunks. On the north side, there’s the Strand House, a multistory bar and restaurant built mostly of steel and paneless glass windows, which serves $50 entrees and provides diners with an unencumbered view of the beach, the sunset and the turquoise Manhattan Beach pier.

Get to know Los Angeles through the places that bring it to life. From restaurants to shops to outdoor spaces, here’s what to discover now.

“Manhattan Beach was a small, quiet beach town for most of its history, and many residents like to cling to that image,” said Gary McAulay, a retired policeman and former head of the Manhattan Beach Historical Society, who has lived in Manhattan Beach for 40 years. “In some ways, it actually is still a close-knit community, but skyrocketing real estate prices and hyper-gentrification, as well as burgeoning tourism, have had their effect on the town’s character.”

Angelenos who find themselves in Manhattan Beach may wonder if they accidentally landed in an idyllic beach town instead of an incorporated city off the 405, just south of LAX. Stroll around the hilly, pedestrian-only walk streets to find groups of friends barbecuing in front yards from morning to night. Pop into a cafe for a lemonade or a boutique for a seashell-covered home decor item. Take a bike ride along the beachfront promenade, the Strand, where maybe you’ll stop to watch a volleyball tournament — or just lust after the homes. At the end of a beach day, summit Manhattan Beach Boulevard and take a seat at Simmzy’s for an ahi tuna starter, burger and sangria.

As in the rest of Los Angeles County, median home prices in Manhattan Beach have doubled over the last 10 years. For better or for worse, depending on who you ask, the upscale-ification has helped make the beach city an even more popular weekend destination. Manhattan Beach Post and Fishing With Dynamite (both helmed by chef David Lefevre) have received numerous accolades, including spots on The Times’ 101 Best Restaurants list, over the years. The Strand House is part of the Zislis Group portfolio, which also owns the swanky Shade Hotel and other restaurants and gastropubs dotting Manhattan Beach Boulevard and the surrounding areas.

The long-standing neighborhood classics are still there — the Kettle and Pancho’s, for instance — but as blogger and longtime beach cities resident Jennifer Richmond notes, “Those are definitely few and far between from the more high-end, three- and four-dollar-sign restaurants.”

This guide encompasses both the neighborhood’s roots and its modern reality. You’ll find more quaint character in the north Manhattan Beach neighborhood of El Porto, new and old gems in the downtown area and true community both further inland and throughout. And, as befits a beach city, the best things are still free.

“Take a stroll along the ocean and get your toes wet,” advises McAulay. “Watch the sunset. It’s beautiful.”

Anyone who’s lived in a major metropolis can tell you that neighborhoods are a tricky thing. They’re eternally malleable and evoke sociological questions around how we place our homes, our neighbors and our communities within a wider tapestry. In the name of neighborly generosity, we included gems that may linger outside of technical parameters. Instead of leaning into stark definitions, we hope to celebrate all of the places that make us love where we live.

MANHATTAN BEACH, CA — The New Year started on a sour note for sweet-toothed Angelenos with the abrupt closure of a longtime Los Angeles bakery chain.

Sweet Lady Jane, a celebrity favorite and 35-year staple, abruptly and permanently shuttered all its Los Angeles County locations on New Year's Day.

The company announced the sudden closure on its website and via email, surprising customers and employees alike. Sweet Lady Jane cited poor sales and the cost of living in California for the decision to shut down.

"After 35 years we are closing our doors. Our last day of business was December 31, 2023," the company wrote on it's website New Year's Eve. "We did not come to this decision lightly nor quickly. While the support and loyalty of our customers has been strong, sales are not enough to continue doing business in the state of California, allowing us to service our lease obligations and pay our treasured employees a living wage without passing those costs directly on to you.

"For more than three decades, we didn’t just build a loyal customer base, we created a real community. It has been a privilege to be included in your sweetest moments. Big and small."

The company first opened on Melrose Avenue in 1988 and, in recent years, expanded rapidly while enjoying a reputation as a go-to bakery among celebrities.

According to its website, Sweet Lady Jane has had locations in:

Employees were apparently just as surprised by the announcement as customers were. Sweet Lady Jane employees were notified of the closure by email on New Year’s Day, KTLA reported. The email reportedly told them they'd be paid through Friday and receive a severance package.

The announcement hit some fans hard, including celebrities. Many took to social media to share their disappointment while others chastised the owners for the way the bakery abruptly closed.

“Just … hate this,” said Actress Sophia Bush, who described the closure as a loss for the community. “And just love you and your business so much.”

Dionne Phillips, a celebrity lash stylist, shared her heartbreak at the closure and the overall struggles of businesses in California.

"Nooooo! Say it isn’t so! This is devastating! LA, California better do something now before this city becomes “The lost City!” All because of greed of taxes and up-charging fees," she wrote in reply to the Instagram announcement. "I won’t be able to get this berrie cake for so many of our memories! This is soo sad for so many reasons! Ugh! Another city treasured businesses disappearing in this deteriorating city!"

Still, other bakery fans took the Sweet Lady Jane to task for blaming the closure on the Golden State.

"I have loved your cakes for years but to blame California for your over expansion and the woes that come with that is unfair. Where else in the country except NY can you charge $100 for a cake? So California and Los Angeles were good to you all these years in making your business, now it’s to blame," Susie Bauer replied to the bakery's Instagram post. "Sorry - It’s on you! So sorry for your employees and that they got no warning of this."

Huge surf pounds West Coast and Hawaii, flooding some low-lying areas

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Powerful surf rolled onto beaches on the West Coast and Hawaii on Thursday as a big swell generated by the stormy Pacific Ocean pushed toward shorelines, causing localized flooding.Forecasters urged people to stay off rocks and jetties, and to not turn their backs to the ocean because of the danger of “sneaker waves” — occasional much bigger waves that can run far up the sand and wash someone off a beach.A high surf warning for parts of Northern California said waves would range from 2...

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Powerful surf rolled onto beaches on the West Coast and Hawaii on Thursday as a big swell generated by the stormy Pacific Ocean pushed toward shorelines, causing localized flooding.

Forecasters urged people to stay off rocks and jetties, and to not turn their backs to the ocean because of the danger of “sneaker waves” — occasional much bigger waves that can run far up the sand and wash someone off a beach.

A high surf warning for parts of Northern California said waves would range from 28 to 33 feet (8.5 to 10 meters) and up to 40 feet (12 meters) at some locations, the National Weather Service said, adding that there were reports of flooding in low-lying coastal areas.

In Aptos on the north end of Monterey Bay, surf overran the beach and swept into a parking lot, leaving the area strewn with debris. Santa Cruz County issued warnings for people in several coastal areas to be ready to evacuate.

“Mother Nature’s angry,” said Eve Krammer, an Aptos resident for several years. “I mean these waves are gnarly. They’re huge.”

The same area was battered by the ocean last January as the West Coast was slammed by numerous atmospheric rivers.

“I feel for the people that are down low here,” said Jeff Howard, also an Aptos resident.

While not quite as huge, the waves along Southern California were also described as hazardous, with life-threatening rip currents. Nonetheless, surfers couldn’t resist.

Patience was key, according to Alex Buford, 27, who was catching waves just north of Manhattan Beach on the Los Angeles County coast.

“I was waiting for awhile because the waves were really sick, and they’re kinda hard to get into even though I have a really big board,” he said. “Just waited for a good one and I got it and it was a long one. Pretty big. It was sick.”

In Hawaii, the weather service forecast surf rising to 30 to 40 feet (9 to 12 meters) along north-facing shores and 18 to 22 feet (5.5 to 6.7 meters) along west-facing shores of five islands.

Professional Hawaii surfer Sheldon Paishon was getting ready to surf Thursday morning at Makaha, a world-famous surfing beach on Oahu’s west side.

Paishon, 30, has been surfing at various spots around Oahu this week, taking advantage of waves during this week’s high surf warning in effect till Friday morning.

“It’s always big waves in the winter time in Hawaii,” he said.

He warned that novice surfers should check with lifeguards before heading into the water and “make sure you got some people around you and stay safe.”

Honolulu Ocean Safety lifeguards, posted at beaches across Oahu, rescued 20 people along the island’s famed North Shore on Wednesday, said spokesperson Shayne Enright. They were also busy with thousands of “preventative actions,” she said.

“This time of year produces incredible surf but it can also be very dangerous,” she said.

The dangerous surf could also cause surges that could hit coastal properties and roadways, the weather service warned.
